Default New NEF 20-Ga Pardner

HI, all. I just joined today after reading for a while because I just brought home a 20-ga NEF Pardner. It's got a 22" barrel and a wood stock with a 12-3/4" LOP and a butt pad. The barrel is stamped:

Pardner-Model SBI
20 GA. 3" MOD. (P)


Reading here says I bought a youth model, is this correct? I like the 22" barrel length. Will I be able to fit a larger stock to it, or can I add length through the buttpad?

Welcome aboard!! Sounds like a youth model by the barrel and stock length. Yes you can swap stocks out. You could also just use a slip on recoil pad to add length. I actually prefer youth length stocks especially in the winter with bulky clothes.

Thanks.


I haven't updated my profile yet, but I'm in San Diego. Not a lot of cold-weather shooting around here


A quick check on the interwebs and eBay shows people selling stocks for 12ga Pardners. There's no difference, right? Any H&R/NEF shotgun stock will fit, and the only things I need to worry about are LOP, condition, and matching wood?

Yes the 16 and 12 gauges will fit. A 410 stock will fit but the fore end would need to be opened up. The 10 ga is too big. Colors vary so get the forearm at the same time if you want to ensure a match.

Welcome to the board.

Before buying on eBay, check the classifieds/trade area. You can also make a post looking to trade your youth size for an adult size stock.

Once you get bit by the bug - you will be checking daily and that 1 shotgun turns into a closet full.

Yeah, I know what you mean. It's already with great effort that I'm not scouring the local shops for more. I must confess, however, that I have been scouring the classifieds for a pistol-caliber barrel that I could swap on.



As long as I'm here... I came across a stock that has a built-in, spring-loaded shell storage. Any opinion on these?

For some reason it won’t let me respond unless I quote.....

Tracked down a stock and forend for $50 shipped. Now I have a youth and an adult setup.

I confess that I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t buy the wood stock with 3-shell storage, but it was a lot more, and I’m trying to keep this budget. 🙂

I think you're referring to the speed-feed stock, maybe someone that has experience with it will respond.

Not sure if this is the same one you're talking about?
